I'm using Win7/64 Premium. I'm unable to generate scheduled daily System Restore points (weekly OK). I've been told several times that Win7 cannot generate daily points....a MS MVP (after telling me this on another forum) actually wrote me a script so that I could do daily points. But I recently came across another person who is able to generate daily points in the "original" Win7. So now I'm confused...is the answer different between basic and premium? Or 32 vs 64? Does anyone have an authoritative answer to this? Thnx.

I highly recommend, you use Erunt: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/ as system restore supplement.
Manual: http://pcug.org.au/boesen/ERUNT/ERUNT.htm
In my opinion, it's better, then System Restore, and I use it on all my Windows versions.

Queenie...that link doesn't work if you want a daily restore.

Broni...I've never liked ERUNT, you can't automatically create daily points and delete the old ones.

Yes, you can.
ERUNT creates daily point automatically, up to 10 of them (this can be adjusted).
11th one will erase 1st one, 12th will erase 2nd one and so on...

ERUNT's automatic backup utility, (autoback.exe) creates an automatic Registry backup during the first boot up each day.
